Christmas 2014

Thank you to all who were so generous in helping provide for the missionaries this Christmas.
Elder and Sister Ruse sorting packages.  Fortunately because of the two devotionals we were able to take packages to the devotionals and missionaries picked their packages up.  We still had some packages arrive on Christmas Eve so the Ruses and Felixes delivered.
Next year we're hoping all packages will be mailed directly to the missionary at his/her apartment.
We hope you all had a wonderful phone call with your missionary.  They were excited for "the calls." 
The mission was divided into the north and south.  Tuesday and Wednesday we had Christmas devotionals.
Sister Felix and the missionaries discussed gospel analogies of the Polar Express after seeing a shortened version of the movie.  We don't think any of us will watch that movie again without remembering some of the analogies.
The following pictures are of Zones 1 - 4 which are:  San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Lompoc, Santa Barbara, and both English and Spanish Ventura.
Lunch was catered by Bro Abbott.  Lunch was great with ham, augratin potatoes, green beens,  carrots, salad, rolls, and applie crisp ala mode.

Missionaries volunteered to participate on the program.  We have many talented missionaries.  The following is the program:  
The assistants did a funny recitation and humorous rendition of Hark! the Herald Angels Sing.

The audience got into it.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Sisters Ashworth, Collings, Reneer and Dearden
Hermana Hurley ties balloons...
I know there are several pictures but even then I've been selective.  She not only ties and "designs" but she is so funny!  She had us ALL laughing.
She is holding a missionary.
President Felix is wearing his crown and Sister Felix's is being made.
President is telling a joke.  Elder Canzona joined in.
I left out the picture that I was laughing so hard.
